Soldier this is well played! You have a good grasp of all the bits we have been working on. CONGRATS!!!! The only thing keeping you from your next MISSION BADGE is that while your playing is very good here, it's not connected to the metronome. It's almost like you are playing to a metronome that I can't hear because the playing is VERY GOOD AND EVEN!! But doesn't seem tied to the metronome click.

I see you can play this fast, but fast often isn't the point, slow down and play it closer to the metronome and lock in your speed.

Hello Todd !

Thank you for your Advise !


A big problem i mostly have is that i can not hear my metronome too most of time when i play fast and put my amp with more gain .

One point is my zoom g3 and his metronome - i can not make it ,itself louder then my guitar only when i would use drum machine settings on zoom it will be loud enough to hear it .

I did try to play two strikes per klick so metro was 4/4 8/4 not possible .

Could you give me some metro loop in 8/4 maybe huh.gif rolleyes.gif for garageband !?!

or is there any way to make it myself with garageband i did not experiment much with it .

EGAD!!!! That is a HUGE problem. You may need to entirely reconfigure your studio setup here as you really do need to hear the metronome. Otherwise, it will be tough to make much progress in bootcamp. Sounds like you are using the one in your pedal and thats not working.hmm.

Your pedal lets you plug in to your computer with USB correct? Maybe skip the amp. I don't use an amp for any of my videos ever. Or my video chat lessons, or Collabs. Use the pedal to record directly in to your computer with REAPER. There will be a learning curve but that's OK smile.gif

Inside reaper it has it's own metronome and you can control the volume of your guitar track. Also, you can just leave your pedal set on CLEAN TONE and use something like OVERLOUD or AMPLITUDE FREE for your guitar tone. It seems like that little pedal doesn't have very much gain/distortion, and plugins like AMPLITUDE can fix that. Also, most guitar plugins have a Metronome built in. I use OVERLOUD in video chat lessons and use GUITAR RIG on a separate track just for the metronome.

Download REAPER and install it and start messing with it.

UNTIL YOU GET THE HANG OF REAPER!!!

You can always use a FREE ONLINE WEB METRONOME!! That way you have volume control with your computer. Here is one that uses only one click tone, so no problem with bass drum snare drum. This is a LOT more flexible than a couple of strings from garage band.

Hello Todd her a record with 120 bpm and 2 strikes per note .

I did download amplitude and it work`s but what made me mad about it ..


that i had to give with every new start of the program again my serial number in and again registration and the same procedure ........

so i deinstalled it !

I did found some amp simulation settings with my zoom g3 - direct input to iMac - where i myself can here the metronome

now better !

Its not my favorite sound settings but for me it would work to use it on the Bootcamp Lessons , right now .

I hope it is fine with you, Todd too !?

By the way i am looking forward to get myself completely new equipment around end of next year and i will start before that

selling my actually hardware , amp and stuff on e-bay without a hurry .


For the new Equipment i would be glad to get some input from you, maybe ?

iMac or MacPro - Apogee - Pro Logic - Quicktime ect. - Headphone - Speakers ..... in this direction maybe !?

AMPLITUDE should only need the serial once but it sounds like it may not be keeping it for some reason? Thats odd and would make me very frustrated very quickly. I can't blame you for uninstalling it smile.gif

Glad to hear you found some presets and can hear your metronome!! smile.gif

Buying a Mac and Logic ( or even using REAPER) is a very good way to go. Also, GARAGE BAND comes free with every Mac and it's a good place to start since it's very simple and quick and I use it myself often to start a song then finish in LOGIC since you can import Garage Band projects to Logic smile.gif

Apogee is a fine choice. They make really good interfaces. Add a pair of nice headphones and you are good to go smile.gif You can start with a Mac Mini and use your existing computer monitor/screen and mouse/keyboard etc. Or maybe get an iMac but they are a bit more.

Also, consider getting a Macbook. That way it's easy to be portable to record anywhere at any time without moving heavy gear and the monitor/screen is built in smile.gif

ON TO THE MISSION!!!

Soldier this one is much better. But take a moment and watch the vid. Listen to the CLICK of the metronome and then listen for your pick strike. At some points, you are playing tight, on the beat, then it drifts. You may be trying to play too fast? Try this.


1.)Slow Down, way down. Focus on the Beat Count.

2.)Focus on the metronome click. You need to synchronise your pick strikes to the metronome so that even with the metronome turned off, your playing sounds like a machine. Precise, controlled, even. This is something that is important to grasp before moving on to playing "around" the beat. Before that, one must play "on" the beat.

I"ll make a vid that may help?

Well done!!! Now you are putting it all together smile.gif Good form! Good Technique! Good Speed! Soldier you are ready to take this to the next level. You have made BIG strides here. I want you to push it a little farther. Here are your MISSION PARAMETERS!!!

1.)See if you can MAINTAIN GOOD HAND SYNCH, and EVEN, STEADY PICKING, and push the speed up just a bit more.

2.)Slow back down and do a DOUBLE PICKING version. Double picking is HARD!!!! Which is why it's worth doing!!!

You are ready to fight a little harder Soldier!! Fight on!!

Todd

The double picking is good!! But you may be pushing it a bit fast. For DOUBLE PICKING, always SLOW DOWN a bit. You've got plenty of speed on the single picking version. It looks like you are losing synch with the beat a bit at this speed. I APPLAUD and APPRECIATE your aggressive approach!!! Try to back off the speed a bit to the point where you stay locked on to the beat. You are very close soldier, more practice and keep fighting!!

Todd

Soldier I am impressed with your AGRESSION, but listen closely to the Marching Orders!!!

1.)CUT THE SPEED IN HALF

Playing each Mission with Precision is 10 TIMES more important than playing it fast. Speed is a byproduct of precision so focus on that first. Here are some tips.

1.)Synch each pick strike to a click on the metronome.
2.)Dont worry about speed.
3.)Play "mechanically" like a Swiss Watch, Tick, Tock, Tick Tock. You have to play like a robot before you can learn to Shred like a God!!!

I hate to have you keep fighting the same Battle Soldier!!! But it's CRUCIAL!!!! that you slow down enough to get a bit more precision. Keep fighting Soldier!!!!!!!

You are playing this bit very well, but you are drifting from the metronome. Watch the vid closely and listen for the clicks on the metronome and compare them to the pick strikes. They sare not quite following the same timing. Being able to play with a metronome (playing like a robot) is a crucial first step. Hear the clicks in your head before you start playing. link your pick hand to the rythm. Hear it in your head, tap your foot, bang your head, internalize the count before you start playing. The metronome has to be something you can lock to or playing with a drummer will be really problematic. Let me know if you get what I"m saying?

It looks like the same issue is still waging war against us Soldier. Your playing is not matching up with the metronome so I"ve made a video just for you. This is EXACTLY what I'd like you to play smile.gif One pick strike, per click, just like in this video. That way you can be sure you are playing on the beat.

This is something you have to conquer in order to be able to play properly. It seems odd at first. But you'll get it. Stay at it!!

It almost sounds like you are playing but not listening to the metronome. As if the metronome is not guiding you. Almost like the metronome was added later, as if your ignoring it. This is what we have to work on first. Nothing else matters at all until this get fixed Soldier. Timing is the very foundation of playing music. So we are going to work on playin "In Time" until we get it right:)

Here is the video. Let me know if this helps?
